By Barbara Joose; illustrated by Randy Cecil
Candlewick, 2012. Unpaged. Picture book.
A lonely little princess wants a dragon with all her heart--and a faraway dragon longs for a princess. When they find each other, they become fast friends and develop a wonderful friendship. This book is written and illustrated beautifully; the text is lyrical and soothing and perfectly complemented with the hatched, blue-hued pictures that manage to be soft and angled simultaneously. The illustrations are thoughtfully designed and composed and manage to appeal to both children and adults. This is a lovely book you won't want to miss!
